The walker-friendly course will start on Clubhouse Way just before Fort Eustis Boulevard and head towards the front gate of Newport News Park on Constitution Way, make the turn-around, and repeat the course heading back towards the start area, finishing at the Clubhouse. This allows participants a chance to enjoy the Celebration in Lights going both directions on the course!

Strollers are allowed on the Glowing Gobbler course.
